Madang inks deal with Philippines school

The Madang Provincial Government has finally signed a memorandum of understanding with the CJI General Services Inc to send over 100 students to the Philippines.

Acting Provincial Administrator, John Bivi, signed the agreement on behalf of the provincial administration with the CJI General Services Inc President and Chief Operating Officer, Jimmy Francis Hinch.

In his attempt to curb law and order in Madang Province, Governor Peter Yama has come up with this idea of sending students, especially those who are on the streets, to the Philippines for studies.

The idea was to expose the students to the world and instill something new into their lives through education so that they will become role models when they return to the province.

Yama said Madang had once been a beautiful province in the country but law and order is now an issue.

Since taking office eight months ago, Governor Yama aims to change Madang and give young people a second chance in life.

Meantime, Bivi said this program has been supported by the province and will be one of the core priority areas for Governor Yama.

The selected students will be leaving the country at the end of this month.
